Question Wheel Clicking

I am curently driving a 1997 Dodge Stratus with 104,000 miles on it. With the help of this forum I have been able to do some minor repairs (change brake light bulb), and know what to ask for when taking to a mechanic. Many thanks.

With the arrival of the warm weather here in New York, I have been able to drive with the windows down. Recently I have discovered a "clicking" noise as I make right turns. This clicking sounds alot like the clicking we desired as kids when we would put a card between the spokes of our bikes. This appears to be coming from the drivers' side front wheel, and it happens when going around bends - - like exit ramps.

Could it be the wheel bearing? I just had this replaced on this exact wheel three months ago. What else could it be??

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the CV joint (HalfAxle) needs replaced.

Yup, bad CV joint. Replace the whole axle.
